    WELLINGTON - A man who broke into a couple's home was shot and killed following an armed confrontation with the homeowner early this morning, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said.

    The homeowner has been identified as Heath Miller, 34, Sheriff's Office spokesman Pete Palenzuela said.

    According to school district records, Miller is a music teacher at Howell L. Watkins Middle School in Palm Beach Gardens. He has been with the district since August 2005, documents show.

    Palenzuela says the Sheriff's Office received a phone call from a woman early this morning at approximately 1:50 a.m.
    She said her husband had shot an armed man who had broken into their residence in the 1300 block of White Pine Drive.

    Investigators said the deceased man, who was wearing black clothing and a black mask, was an armed intruder.

    Nobody else inside the house was injured.

    The homeowners credit their dog with alerting them to the presence of the intruder, who came in through a sliding-glass door, officials said.

    Palenzuela said Miller told authorities he saw the silhouette of an individual with a handgun coming through the bedroom door and fired.

    Deputies said there was "an exchange of gunfire.'' They found the intruder dead in the kitchen with several gunshot wounds.

    Detectives recovered a .40-caliber handgun used by the suspect in the home invasion, according to Palenzuela.

    Explain to me how the fact that they are a teacher makes any sizable contribution to the news story?

    Liberal media portraying law abiding teacher as violent and demented. No longer fit to teach children.



    Just kidding... but it sure seems like they opened that door on purpose.

    Said the perp had multiple gunshot wounds, so we know it wasn't a 10mm. :o

    It doesn't. Paper probably wants to sensationalize shit and piss off parents at the guy's school because the guy owns a firearm.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

    Too bad this is like the 1 in 9038402918340931283 story against gun control.

    But props to them for defending themselves, happy to see someone smart with a gun.
